No because I own all the other audiobooks on here by JoanRivers !
Everyone of her audiobooks there are always ad lib.'s or not from her books that she throws into it and make it kind of funny this one was just gruesome details about plastic surgery that I thought was not clever at all . End with Joan Rivers she's always funny and even with the title and the cover it's funny so I figured that would've been some funny parts even though this book was not meant to be a comedic book it was meant being more educational but in the book there are funny parts and she didn't make them funny. Come on this is JoanRivers end it said that this was one of her last few audiobooks to be recorded . Enough said
This book is different than Joan's other books, in that it's a great explanation of all sorts of Plastic Surgery and other Cosmetic Options available. Super informative but still told with that Joan Rivers style and humor.
Being an informational book, it's not as funny as Joan's usual material BUT she's able to deliver what could be boring, dry material in a captivating - and funny way. Typical Joan River's style!
What an absolutely fantastic book. Not only was it funny, of course with Joan Rivers what could it be, but so informative! Everyone has always wondered; what it would be like to have a surgical procedure done. Joan goes in depth and tells you all. Some funny, some scary. But she always tells the truth. A definite handbook for anyone considering plastic surgery. Thank you John.
I've listened to it a little over two times. Joan is--was :(--super entertaining, so the information that IS delivered is that much easier to remember and understand.
She's got some of her stand-up style in it. It's funny. I've listened to it when I was down in the dumps--partly because I've been thinking about having some work done and I get down about how unsupportive some of my friends can be--and it's helped me turn my mood around. She makes me laugh, and maybe she'll do the same for you.
Her suggestions about how to find the right doctor. She's really made me get to the point where I'll spend the extra money, just to make sure that I'm working with a doctor who I feel totally good about.
I want more in-depth information about the particular procedures I'm interested in. Sometimes I'm disappointed with how superficial some of the descriptions are. But overall, Joan's given me a great introduction into becoming a consumer of plastic surgery and/or cosmetic procedure.
This is not a book of jokes. Joan Rivers speaks frankly and technically about every kind of cosmetic surgery one can imagine. Her information is well-researched and thorough.
